The white lump at the bottom left of the MRI scan is a tumour of a rare type –  Langerhans Cell Histocytosis. In this case of the daughter of Anthony Sargeant the tumour is in the bone at the back of the skull but about to penetrate the dura surrounding the brain – it is already pressing on the brain as can be seen in this image. We are grateful to Dr Rao Gattamaneni and his colleagues and neurosurgeon Mr Leggatt for their prompt diagnosis and intervention.
